Auditioning for Minnesota Boychoir

Every boy that auditions for the Boychoir will be placed in a choir appropriate to their level. The auditions are very low-key and easy. The director checks their range, plays some matching note games and then has the child sing Twinkle, Twinkle and Happy Birthday. Auditioning boys will also get a chance to answer questions about what they like to do, where they go to school, and other personal questions to make the process less stressful.
